    Hi i need a new sub after my old faithful died during a power spike :( and will be replaced with 'equal or better' by the electric company :D

    The sub came with a Yamaha HTIB45 setup


    The speaker pack is Nsp220 which i recon is about 150 quid but since i bought it with the amp do u recon i should claim the lot or just the new sub/speaker pack??

    If i go for the speaker pack i'll have 150 quid to spend which i might as well spend on a sub.

    What can i get for that price? and where?

    That would be my total budget as i'm sooo skint it hurts :blush:

    I use the Gale 3080, pretty good with both music and films for the price.

    velodyne vx 10 200 quid on the powerbuys on these forums........................it will make mincemeat, out of the 2 gale subs and possibly the m/ short one. or you could go second hand!

    Mincemeat?
    Surely it should “blow them out of the water” at the least. :)

    Hamtaro, have you demoed the 3080?
    I’d be intereseted in your views, particulary an A/B comparison with the velodyne.

    the term blow them out of the water sounds stupid, and inever use that term.secondly no i havent compared or demoed the 3080! what i can say i nearly did buy it, but after doing a search on these forums found a few members a bit dissapointed with this sub.the velodyne vx 10 was highly reccomended thats why i choose it,and it also has a better spec[ and i m not talking volume] and a better build quality. the 3080 might keep you happy ,but unfortunetly it didnt, impress me.

    From the 3 that you mention, the only one i've heard is the Eltax. At the price point there is little wrong with it. 10'' driver 175w amp, plus it's quite compact as well.

    Also a Gale 3080 user. Very good with both films and music, powerful, agile, musical, goes down to 25Hz. Can lose conrol at high settings though, so don't expect the volume knob to go much past 45% on this sub (more than enough for your average, flimsily constructed British home!). Also has a large base port in the rear, which can cause probs when placed too close to a wall. Bunging the port solves that problem and tightens up the base no end. Good value at £150. Worth using good cable too (like GED's new sub cables).
